Will ApeCoin Continue to Skyrocket in Value?

Will ApeCoin continue to go up in value?
You can now buy ApeCoin with Coinbase – Will ApeCoin keep going up?

Should you get in on ApeCoin or stay the hell away from it!?

ApeCoin was made available to retail investors on Wednesday, March 16th.

The cryptocurrency comes from a partnership between The Bored Ape Yacht Club and a decentralized company, ApeCoin DAO.

The new cryptocurrency has gained the attention of the retail community primarily invested in NFTs and crypto.

But stocks, crypto, NFTs, that’s what the new generation is all about.

ApeCoin started at $1 per token and is currently trading over $14!

Will the cryptocurrency continue to go up in value?

Let’s talk about it.

What is ApeCoin?

ApeCoin is a cryptocurrency deriving from the Ethereum blockchain launched by the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC).

If you don’t know who BAYC is chances are you might have seen their popular NFTs online at some point.

They depict creative and stylish bored apes that sell tremendously high on the market!

Below is a gallery of their work.

Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTS

The company Yuga Labs is the creator of both the Bored Ape Yacht Club and now ApeCoin.

ApeCoin is owned and operated by the ApeCoin DAO, a decentralized organization where each token holder gets to vote on governance and use of the Ecosystem Fund.

What is the purpose of ApeCoin?

ApeCoin ($APE) is a token for culture, gaming, and commerce used to empower a decentralized community building at the forefront of web3.

The cryptocurrency is essentially creating a token for members of its community to further enrich its NFT culture.

Will Yuga Labs’ new cryptocurrency have the same ‘status’ as Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs do?

It’s certainly possible, but I’d love to hear your thoughts on this in the comment section at the end of the article.

The project is looking to create value within the blockchain culture, which has many possibilities that are still to this date unknown.

Just like when the internet was new, this new culture of blockchain technology is going to change the world.

Crypto, NFTs, and everything that we currently know in the space is just the beginning.

Where can you buy ApeCoin?

Buy ApeCoin with Coinbase
Buy ApeCoin with Coinbase

You can buy ApeCoin through a crypto exchange such as:

  • Coinbase
  • Gemini
  • CoinMarketCap
  • Binance
  • Kraken
  • FTX

Something curious happened when the new cryptocurrency launched, it was available on every major crypto exchange.

The crypto is still fairly new and I anticipate as it continues to gain more attention, more retail investors will take a position.

How many ApeCoin tokens are in circulation?

ApeCoin circulation - ApeCoin supply
Will ApeCoin keep going up?

ApeCoin has a total max supply of 1 billion tokens and 277.5 million are currently in circulation, which equivalates to only 28% of the total supply.

ApeCoin’s total max supply is less than Cardano (ADA, 45b), Ripple (XRP, 100b), and Algorand (ALGO, 10b).

While the new cryptocurrencies circulating supply is relatively low compared to its max supply, investors must be aware that developers may increase the circulating supply at any moment.

Increasing the supply (like any other cryptocurrency) would lower the price of ApeCoin.

The cryptocurrency is still a highly speculative play and investors should always due extensive research to identify and estimate whether the cryptocurrency will continue to go up in value.

Interesting facts about ApeCoin

Will Ape Coin go up

The creators of ApeCoin distributed the cryptocurrency for free to every Bored Ape Yacht Club holder.

For each Bored Ape you own, you’re entitled to 10,094 $APE.

That’s equivalent to $150,000 today.

So far, around 110 million APE tokens have been claimed by NFT holders.

Yuga Labs is getting 150 million APE, 10 million of which (“or equal value”) will go to the Jane Goodall Legacy Foundation.

140 million $APE will go to the companies and people that helped initiate the project.

The 80 million $APE going to its founders of Yuga Labs will be locked for the first 12 months so holders cannot cash out and tank the price.

So, is APE worth buying and holding for a year?

Let me know what you think in the comment section below.

How is ApeCoin being used?

Benji Bananas
Will Ape Coin go up

A mobile game called Benji Bananas, developed by Animoca Brands (whose co-founder, Yat Siu, is on the board of the Ape Foundation), is adopting ApeCoin as a kind of in-game currency. 

For 25 ApeCoins, you can buy a Benji Bananas Membership Pass, which lets you earn “special tokens” in-game.

Those tokens can then be swapped for actual ApeCoins.

So far, this is the only utility of APE as it’s relatively new.

ApeCoin is part of the Bored Ape Yacht Club’s ecosystem and I expect a lot more utility will be offered in the future as we enter the metaverse and blockchain technology becomes more familiar.

What we do know is that APE will be used to access merchandise, events, and services later on.

How much is $APE worth?

At the time of this article, ApeCoin is currently trading in the market for $23.85.

Its current market cap is $7.1B with a typical hold time of 25 days according to Coinbase.

An improvement from earlier this March as seen below.

APE Market Stats – Will Ape Coin go up?

If retail investors decide to go long on APE then we can expect the typical hold time to increase.

ApeCoin is up more than 2,300% since its inception and has gained a lot of popularity across multiple crypto exchanges.

The $12-$13 price range seemed to be a foundation for APE although the cryptocurrency has begun to set new ATHs.

Granted, it’s only been two months, but I’d love to know your thoughts on how high this crypto asset can go.

Will GME Stock Split Force a Short Squeeze?

GME Stock Split

GameStop announced a GME stock split late March which should have received more attention than it did.

GME stock surged afterhours when the announcement was made public but failed to maintain its momentum as we’ve seen in the weeks since.

What will this split/dividend mean for shareholders and short sellers alike?

Let’s break it down together.

GameStop announces stock split in form of dividend

GameStop stock split dividend

Let’s discuss what a GME stock split in the form of a dividend would mean for both shareholders and short sellers.

When GameStop first announced the stock split/dividend news, I published an article breaking down how a stock split and dividend essentially work.

You can read the article here for a more in-depth description on the two.

But no matter how you take it, one thing is certain.

The borrower of the stock is responsible for paying any dividends to the lenders.

Here’s what we can see happen before the split/dividend.

1. Continuous shorting in GME stock

I don’t expect short sellers to ease off shorting GME stock prior to a stock split or dividend.

Afterall, we are in a bear market.

So, the market sentiment overall continues to be on a downtrend.

In a recent article titled, “How close are AMC and GameStop to squeezing?“, I explain how a bull market will trigger massive price action in both these stocks.

Primarily because the market sentiment during this time will be sending share prices upward.

Shorts will have to close to their positions to profit from this bear market, or face riskier bets on the way up.

So, while the GME stock split is bullish in nature, stocks are being kept in line due to the bearish course of the markets in general.

2. Gamma prior to approval of stock split/dividend

GameStop’s stock split/dividend still has to be approved by the board and shareholders.

The game retailer merely announced the move; however, it must undergo the approval process.

You can bet short sellers will be on a ticking time bomb before this process goes into full effect.

You see, the lender is going to want their dividend.

If you short sellers don’t want to pay this dividend to the lender, they’ll have to return the shares they borrowed in the first place.

This is where we can expect to see big gamma occur prior to GME’s stock split becoming official.

What will happen if shorts don’t deliver borrowed shares before stock split?

If GameStop’s price surges, shorts will accrue greater losses and the lender will still require shorts to pay back that dividend.

Any dilution from a stock split won’t necessarily affect short sellers, but if a dividend is approved then shorts will have to pay that dividend to the lender.

The issue of a stock split/dividend has often been seen as bullish.

Shorts betting on this play could be exposing themselves to very big risks.

Will a GME stock split or dividend expose naked shares?

There’s this concept floating around that a GME stock split or dividend yield will expose many more shares are circulating the market than there are in existence.

I can’t speak too much on this, but I would love to know your thoughts on this below.

It’s an interesting concept that would essentially unveil millions to billions of synthetic shares.

The premise behind this concept is to expose the shares and get short sellers to close every single share, resulting in a GameStop MOASS (mother of all short squeezes).

Leave your thoughts in the comment section of the blog.

What will this move mean for shareholders?

GameStop shareholders will be able to vote on this GME stock split/dividend.

A stock split will dilute the float providing shareholders with more GME stock shares at a lower price.

An approved divided will yield quarterly or yearly compensation for holding the stock.

It’s extremely bullish if you’re a shareholder and believe in the company’s long-term vision.

GameStop and Loopring just launched their beta NFT marketplace last month.

The company is evolving into a tech company with its ecommerce foundation and use of blockchain technology, which we will see more of in the metaverse without a doubt.

GameStop is adapting to the use of new technology for the future of gaming and I’m excited to see this space evolve.

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

AMC Falls After Trading Halt: Was This Illegal?

AMC Falls After Trading Halt: Was This Illegal?
Trading halts cause AMC stock to fall more than 11%

AMC falls more than 8% the day after market makers halted trading, though the SEC has the power to halt trading as well.

The theatre chain stock had risen to more than $34 per share shortly after the market opened.

But a trading halt seized retail momentum causing the stock to plummet.

Coincidentally, GameStop was also halted as the game retailer soared to almost $200 per share.

Was this illegal? And should it be illegal?

Who can halt trades?

who can halt stock trades
Who can halt stock trades?

Market makers, exchanges, and the SEC can halt trades.

As AMC falls, retail investors continue to ask why this ongoing manipulation in the market continues.

The question is who halted the trade of AMC and GME stock?

Prior to a halt, individual exchanges typically make an announcement alerting investors and keeping them informed.

Shareholders did not receive an alert.

So, did the SEC halt trading or was it market makers?

Most retail investors wouldn’t be surprised if it was both as the SEC Chairman Gary Gensler has not addressed retail’s concern.

The SEC has failed to address retail investors’ issues and has neglected to enforce proper measures against short seller market manipulation.

What is the purpose of halting trades?

The purpose of halting trades is to refrain investors from having a massive selloff, or in ‘meme stocks’ case, to refrain the stock from squeezing shorts from their positions.

Our financial system is in a great state of emergency at the moment.

And retail investors have created a disruption for just about every corrupt player in the game that feeds off of the small investor.

So, what can retail investors do about this manipulation in the market?

Retail investors must persistently raise awareness about the issues the community is facing.

The moment retail stops fighting for a fair market is the moment greed driven politicians and institutions win.

With enough energy and time, more and more people will begin to wake up to the truth.

Related: How do hedge funds manipulate the stock market?

Will these halts have a long-term effect?

AMC’s and GameStop’s trading halt might have slowed down the process of squeezing shorts, but only for a moment.

See, the data hasn’t changed despite the market manipulation.

And it’s true, the longer short sellers drag this momentum play the bigger the event will be.

That’s because the number of shares being loaned have reached an all-time high and they continue to multiply.

This applies to GameStop too.

Eventually they’ll have to buy these borrowed shares back.

How long will that take?

That will depend on how long they can afford to hold their positions since they pay a fee to short both AMC and GME stock.

Be sure to check out this article here for more on what will trigger AMC to squeeze plus data, chart analysis, and patterns.

Days to cover is going down

I want to share this chart with you really quick.

The grey line going up shows short sellers have more shares now to cover than they did back in January and May/June of 2021.

This instantly tells us AMC’s next runup is going to surpass that of May/June’s all-time high.

The purple line shows us the ‘days to cover’.

Every time AMC’s DTC went down, we experienced new ATHs.

We can see in the chart that the days to cover is coming down again.

As Trey says, this is not a dead cat.

Expect AMC’s next runup to be more violent than June’s runup last year.

Will this be MOASS?

You’ll have to keep an eye out on the short interest data to identify how much percentage goes down during the climb.

This will give us a rough estimate of how many short sellers are left in the play.

And as AMC falls today, keep in mind that the entire market is also falling.

Big price moves are coming for AMC, be prepared.

Wall Street Journal is Indirectly Owned by Citadel’s Ken Griffin

wall street journal is owned by Ken Griffin

Wall Street Journal just published a piece on the AMC community where the conflict of interest is only so obvious.

They refer to the community as a mob and disrespect AMC’s CEO Adam Aron by saying apes made the CEO “play by their rules.”

WSJ tries to discredit the CEO and portrays the community as an entirely different culture than what it is.

Come to find out, Ken Griffin actually owns Wall Street Journal, well sorta.

Let’s dive right into it.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that fights FUD media. When the community is getting attacked you know we’re doing something right.

Let’s get started!

Now, we can’t be too harsh on the two writers who published this article.

Afterall, they’re just doing their job, right?

Who owns the Wall Street Journal?

The Wall Street Journal is owned by News Corp., a company where Ken Griffin’s Citadel has a stake in.

Who owns Wall Street Journal? Source, Investopedia

News Corp is Wall Street Journal’s parent company.

Not only do they have ownership of the Wall Street Journal, but they also own other DOW Jones assets such as the Dow Jones Newswire.

Other media brands by the DOW Jones include Barrons and MarketWatch, media companies who have been attacking AMC Entertainment all year.

DOW Jones Media Brands
DOW Jones Media Brands

All these finance media platforms are tied and owned by News Corp.

So, where does Ken Griffin come in?

Ken Griffin Owns Almost 1.4 Million Shares of News Corp.

Ken Griffin owns news corp
Ken Griffin owns News Corp, source

CEO of Citadel Securities, Ken Griffin owns News Corp, the company that has ownership over Wall Street Journal, Barrons, MarketWatch, DOW Jones, and other media outlets spewing ill words of AMC Entertainment and its community.

Citadel Securities is on the top 10 list of hedge funds shorting AMC stock.

Anchorage Capital, who was also on that list just closed down after betting against AMC.

The hedge fund had an 18-year run.

There’s a major conflict of interest when the owner of all these companies is using them to pump propaganda to fit a nefarious agenda.

Citadel Securities attempted to bankrupt AMC Entertainment earlier this year but failed after retail investors saved the company.

Because AMC stock has a short squeeze set up, retail investors are not leaving until overleveraged hedge funds have closed their short positions in AMC.

Though the multi-billionaire has the power to influence these companies, the community has the power to expose these untrustworthy media platforms.

And that’s enough to raise awareness.

The Fall of Hedge Funds and FUD Media

Both hedge funds and FUD media platforms face intense scrutiny from investors.

Not only are hedge funds such as Citadel Securities causing financial turmoil for their clients, but financial news platforms are now being exposed as being tied to manipulation tactics.

What can the community do to fight against this manipulation?

It’s simpler than you might think.

By raising awareness.

The more people are educated, the more they will have a clear conscious of what news to consume and what financial path to follow.

These mainstream finance platforms have cost the public so much money.

By scaring them out of their money, they missed the opportunity to secure a position in AMC Entertainment when it traded low.

AMC stock is currently up more than 1300% year-to-date.

AMC Surges More Than 15% Entering the New Week

AMC Surges more than 15%
A deep dive into AMC stock’s market performance

Today AMC surged more than 15% closing at $18.26 per share.

The movie theatre chain stock closed at $15.86 per share on Monday.

Retail volume fueled today’s price action which also surged compared to its average volume of 44 million.

Let’s go over AMC’s market stats, short interest, and weekly prediction below.

AMC sees surge in retail volume

AMC stock market stats
AMC stock market stats

Today AMC Entertainment Holdings saw a surge in retail trading volume.

The stock’s average trading volume is 44 million but rose to 75 million today.

Is AMC getting ready to begin a new bull run?

Today marks the third day in a row AMC surges from its previous market downtrend.

The movie theatre chain is up more than 25% in the past 5 trading days and 71% in the past year.

Mainstream media has been misleading investors not to expect and ‘encore’, but it seems we’re about to get a full show again.

Last year AMC reached an all-time high of $72 per share when retail began to buy the stock en masse.

AMC only had a short interest of 20% when it surged.

Today AMC’s short interest is at 21% with utilization at 100.

‘Apes’ understand this is a very important figure.

Let’s break it down together.

AMC’s high short interest is a guarantee the stock will continue to soar

AMC short interest
Bookmark the short interest updated daily

I published an article this past weekend breaking down the data that shows AMC is on trajectory for another massive price runup.

You can read the data here.

AMC’s chart patterns are showing a ‘squeeze’ type runup is forming.

We know this by analyzing the short interest percentage, utilization rate, cost to borrow, days to cover, and previous runup patterns.

The AMC surges we’ve seen in the past few days proves corporate media is merely fueling a narrative that benefits its owners, who in most part are short selling AMC and GameStop.

Early investors are profitable again, but they are not leaving.

‘Bag holders’ did not hold the bag for months to break even.

The data has always been there, and it says AMC will soar into the hundreds of dollars per share as small short sellers begin to close.

This doesn’t take into account the number of positions that have to be closed by overleveraged hedge funds.

There’s no doubt those who got in late will too be profitable as AMC surges past triple digit numbers.

AMC surges after hours

A typical sign of more bullish path is rising after hours price.

While this price should be taken with a grain of salt, it’s been a bullish indicator, nonetheless.

AMC saw a 1.33% increase after hours last Friday.

Similarly, AMC saw many of these after hour increases prior to its runup to $72 per share last year.

While the small price influx isn’t a ‘make it or break it’, it certainly builds investor confidence.

AMC outlook looks positive

The available data, earnings, and community sentiment is extremely positive for AMC Entertainment.

Most AMC shareholders say they will invest back into the company after they squeeze shorts from their positions.

BREAKING: 95% of Retail Orders Don’t Go Through Lit Exchange

Gary Gensler says 90%-95% of retail orders don't go through lit exchange
Gary Gensler says 90%-95% of retail orders don’t go through lit exchange

Gary Gensler just announced exclusively on Bloomberg that 90-95% of retail orders don’t go through the lit exchange.

The SEC Commissioner says these orders are rerouted to dark pools rather than the NYSE.

It’s a year after the ‘meme stock’ frenzy that the community receives this official news.

The ‘ape’ community has been labeled as conspiracy theorists but have proven to be correct time and time again.

Will synthetics finally be uncovered?

And how soon will AMC and GameStop squeeze?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – Gary Gensler just confirmed the market manipulation that the ‘ape’ community has been exposing all year. Ladies and gentlemen, this means AMC’s share price is synthetic…

Let’s get started!

Gary Gensler on Bloomberg

Gary Gensler confirms 90%-95% or retail orders are processed in dark pools

SEC Chairman and Commissioner Gary Gensler says payment for order flow is partly the reason why orders aren’t processed on the lit exchange.

He says retail orders go to wholesalers on an order-by-order competition.

Citadel’s Ken Griffin has praised PFOF stating it’s good for retail investors.

However, PFOF allows market makers to process retails orders in the ‘dark markets’, or dark pools.

This means retail buying volume is out of sync with AMC’s actual share price.

AMC’s share price is synthetic, it only reflects a small portion of buying volume.

Market Makers have been stealing from retail investors

Market makers have been stealing from retail investors with absolutely no consequence from regulators.

Now that the cat is out of the hat, what is going to be done about it?

How does one account for all the orders that have been derailed from the lit exchange market and fix the share price to reflect the correct amount?

Banning PFOF is one thing but what about the money that has been masked by dark pools?

Will these financial institutions be held accountable for financial treason?

The integrity of the stock market has been tainted for far too long, now it’s time to take action.

Will PFOF get banned in the U.S?

According to Gary Gensler, PFOF is banned in the UK, Canada, Australia, and in Europe.

However, because the U.S has a very strong capitalist economy, it could prove to be difficult.

Gensler says, “I think it’s natural that we look to say, how do we drive great competition and efficiency in this market, and use the tools that congress has given us.”

Here the SEC Chairman is saying their solution is to find someone who can compete with these market makers rather than banning PFOF in general.

We’ve seen these efforts through the IEX exchange D-Limit order.

IEX is a lit exchange that reflects much more accurate share prices and eliminates the predatorial strategies used by market makers and hedge funds.

These strategies include PFOF and high frequency trading.

Retail wants orders processed through the lit exchange

The SEC is supposed to be protecting retail investors from nefarious market practices.

Therefore, it is the SEC’s duty to find a solution and locate the money that retail is missing.

Retail wants orders processed through the lit exchange.

Market makers do not have the consent to move retail money through dark pools or other foreign markets.

Welcome to Franknez.com – AMC’s weekly chart is looking rather strong and with the utilization now at 100, it seems we’ve seen this pattern before.

Let’s get right into it!

This week’s AMC news

AMC Entertainment just hired former Frito-Lay executive Ellen Copaken to lead the company’s branded popcorn business.

AMC stock surged 10% after the announcement which tells us the company is beginning to have fundamental value again.

While shareholders might be buying and holding the stock for a short squeeze, CEO and President Adam Aron is focused on the fundamental growth of the company.

Moody’s just upgraded AMC to Caa2, noting a positive outlook for the company in a recovering industry.

With Adam Aron announcing a debt refinance plan, the company is set to pay off its debt originally owed by 2025 this year.

Short interest & utilization

AMC Short Interest

AMC’s short interest data shows us the stock has a perfect setup for a short squeeze play.

Utilization has reached 100 meaning every single share from the supply is out on loan.

These are shares that have been borrowed and at some point, need to be returned or paid back.

AMC’s short interest has reached 22.07%.

This is going play an important role as short sellers begin to close their short positions.

Proof of Naked Shares in AMC Has Surfaced [Data Driven]

Proof of naked shares in AMC

The incredible retail community is diving deep into collecting proof of naked shares in the market.

But more specifically in AMC stock.

In a case study done by Log the Float, the data shows more than 128 million shares of AMC were sold on Apex (clearing house), or 43.01% of AMC’s entire float.

It also equivalates to 24.99% of the shares outstanding.

Apex AMC naked shares

Below I break down their proof of naked shorting in AMC.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – proof of naked shorting has surfaced in a data driven article by a community member. I will break down pieces of the long article to simply its content.

Let’s get started!

In this excel file you’ll find that AMC has the largest percentage of shares outstanding compared to a variety of ticker symbols held by Apex.

The second company with the highest shares outstanding is CAR stock at 16%, which just had a short squeeze.

Car Stock Short Squeeze Chart
Car Stock Short Squeeze Chart

Proof of Naked Shorting in AMC

AMC naked shares on Apex
Naked shares AMC

The lowest point of this graph reflects the 24.99% shares outstanding on Apex (December).

You can imagine how much higher this percentage was back in January and May of 2021 (peaks).

So, although we see an incredible amount of share dilution last year, the percentage is still rather high going into 2022.

LTF argues that the percentage should be around 1% or less considering Apex is not even one of the top clearing firms and touches topic on “market-maker alliance”.

While one might argue that we would need more information from other market makers to validate the existence of naked shares, this is certainly a good start.

The argument isn’t about how many naked shares are out there, but whether they exist or not.

Let’s hear what Charles Gradante has to say.

Also, be sure to watch the topic discussion on YouTube at the end of the article.

Charles Gradante on Naked Shorting

In this incredible event panel, hedge fund industry expert Charles Gradante provides us with insight on what’s truly happening from Wall Street’s perspective that mainstream media isn’t talking about.

While mainstream media and regulators look at retail investors, Charles Gradante explains market makers favor shorting stock, creating a massive conflict of interest given the incredible amount of power they have over the markets.

Charles Gradante on meme stocks and market makers

Charles Gradante says regulators don’t know how to handle “it” when referring to the market manipulation surrounding “meme stocks”.

“When shorting got out of hand, the market makers created synthetic shorts”

Charles Gradante

Charles provides retail investors with an immense amount of value in this short video.

He walks us through the taking away of the buy button in order to benefit market makers and hedge funds who went short on AMC and GameStop.

Ladies and gentlemen, we now have proof of naked shares in the market.

Retail investors must now look onto regulators to ensure every single naked share out there is bought back and reflected accurately on the lit market.

The biggest transfer of wealth will require individuals to tackle their rights for it.

Once again, the ape community was right.

What to expect moving forward

franknez.com

AMC stock continues to be bought and held by retail investors across the world in attempts to squeeze big shorts from their positions and create real change in the markets.

The play has become more than just a trade, it’s become a movement.

Persistence and patience are what will create this massive transfer of wealth for anyone holding these heavily and overleveraged stocks.

Regulators will be forced to find solutions with integrity or face the consequences from the new world.

Why Didn’t AMC Squeeze Last Year in 2021? [Deep Dive]

Why didn't AMC squeeze last year?
Why didn’t AMC squeeze? And can it squeeze this year?

Many of you might be wondering why AMC didn’t squeeze last year in 2021.

The stock had an incredible year overall.

Retail investors who got in for a short squeeze play early came up more than 1000%!

However, these retail investors knowns as ‘apes’ continue to hold the stock into 2022.

After all, people got in for a short squeeze play, not to make a quick buck.

So, why didn’t AMC squeeze last year in 2021?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to touch topic on AMC since it’s been the most anticipated stock of all 2021. You’re going to want to stick around for this one.

Let’s get started!

AMC was one of the most searched for ticker symbols in 2021 and consistently trended on Yahoo Finance throughout the year.

Many of you aren’t new to the blog.

I was an early adopter in the AMC saga and helped a ton of people get in on this play early.

So, what was so special about buying AMC stock in 2021?

After GameStop’s share price increased to incredible levels nearing $500 per share, retail investors noticed AMC’s short interest was also high.

A high short interest meant the stock was heavily shorted therefore short sellers could be squeezed out of their positions, triggering a short squeeze (massive price flux.).

AMC experienced massive gains from $2 per share up to $20 per share.

Momentum then further escalated AMC’s share price to $72 per share before slowly cooling off to today’s price levels.

However, AMC didn’t fully squeeze last year, it merely removed small shorts from their positions during these runups.

But more on that later, let’s break down what is currently going on with AMC stock.

AMC Continues to Be Shorted

AMC Short Shares Available to borrow

AMC was one of the heaviest shorted stocks in the market last year.

Though mainstream media might claim that AMC squeezed last year, it only experienced gamma squeezes (momentum).

Because the short interest did fluctuate, we can access that some short covering did indeed occur.

However, AMC’s short interest is still relatively high.

When AMC soared to $72 per share last year the short interest dropped from 20% to 14%.

AMC’s current short interest is at 20%.

AMC Short Interest 2022

This means there’s ample room for AMC’s share price to continue surging in 2022.

Why didn’t shorts cover their positions in AMC last year?

A few short sellers did cover their short positions in AMC last year, though according to the short interest many open positions remain.

In fact, according to the short interest data, there’s approximately more than 102 million shares on loan that have yet to be closed.

Financial institutions have to close these positions at some point, and that’s whether they’re profitable or not.

Because short squeeze plays are rare, we’re learning more about their development through AMC and GameStop.

The matter of the fact is that AMC Entertainment is no longer going bankrupt so even if the share price drops below $10 and shorts cover profitable, we can expect to see a massive runup from the buying pressure happening all at once.

Why bigger shorts didn’t cover AMC last year is almost like saying why didn’t retail investors sell their stock last year.

Both retail and short sellers are going long on AMC Entertainment stock.

This means eventually individual people from both groups will begin to cave in.

And it’s an entire ecosystem of some taking profits or cutting their losses.

As AMC’s share price continues to drop in 2022, it provides short sellers with open positions in AMC from last year to finally close this year.

The results?

Massive price movements.

Market manipulation events

Market manipulation exposed
Market manipulation exposed

Retail investors who bought AMC stock last year saw a number of ways hedge funds manipulate the market.

From borrowing shares that don’t exist to short the stock, to OTC trading and dark pool trading, retail saw it all.

These predatorial strategies were used in efforts to discourage retail from further buying the stock.

Last year we saw Melvin Capital almost close if it weren’t for Citadel giving them a lifeline.

Mudrick threw in the towel and Archegos went bankrupt.

Anchorage Capital closed after 18 years; they had more than 4 million put options in AMC stock and were one of the top 10 institutional firms shorting AMC stock last year.

Another hedge fund on that list is Citadel Securites who lost billions in AMC in 2021, negatively affecting their customers.

Will this trend continue in 2022?

How long can shorts drag not covering?

Just as retail investors can go long on a stock for many years, short sellers can also drag not covering for long periods of time.

This squeeze play will have intermittent episodes where we see some covering before new shorts open a position.

AMC Entertaiment is a hot spot for short sellers to bet against the stock and the company’s progress.

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?

Why didn't AMC Squeeze in 2021? Can AMC squeeze in 2022?
Why didn’t AMC squeeze in 2021? Can AMC still squeeze in 2022?

As AMC’s share price continues to tumble, short sellers may begin to take profits by closing their short positions.

It’s this buying pressure that will ultimately lead AMC to experience major price moves this year.

Whether these price moves will trigger a chain of short covering or not is an event that has yet to unfold.

Could AMC squeeze in 2022?

Absolutely.

But while regulators fall back on the uncovering of synthetics, for now the short interest is the only data that confirms how much potential this squeeze has.

Year May End in Short Squeeze Cyclical Rallies Says Analyst

Short Squeeze News Marko Kolanovic
Short Squeeze News – Marko Kolanovic

JP Morgan Chief Global Analyst, Marko Kolanovic, is predicting we will transition into the new year with short squeeze cyclical rallies.

He indicates that short sellers will get squeezed soon due to aggressive shorting and resilient retail investors.

“Large short positions will likely need to be closed before January”, via Business Insider.

This news comes after the retail investor community in AMC and GameStop have been advising about overleveraged hedge funds all year.

GameStop is up 800% and AMC is up more than 1300% year-to-date.

While both stocks have recently come down, they are still heavily shorted with lots of room for growth with a short squeeze.

The ape community has been speaking of a ‘third phase’ where the next runup of both these stocks will reach new ATHs.

But some apes are skeptic.

Will this be a proper short squeeze?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – if you’ve been reading the blog since early 2021 then you’ve probably made a ton of money. And if you’ve diamond handed AMC stock all year, it’s about to get a whole lot better.

Let’s get started!

Massive Moves Are on the Horizon

rocket ship

Mainstream media claimed the runup to $72 per share was AMC’s short squeeze.

Only it wasn’t a proper runup.

AMC has always had more potential due to how overleveraged short sellers are on the company.

The Ape community has held through losses and gains and bought every dip.

This resilience is why AMC stock is setup for another massive runup.

Only this runup will be much larger than the first and second.

TA (Technical Analysis) charts have shown AMC’s next runup could very well reach hundreds of dollars per share.

I’ve predicted AMC’s third runup will easily reach $200-$300 while other analysts in the community are predicting $400-$600 per share.

How high AMC’s price will go will depend on how much short covering actually occurs.

Even then, with millions of synthetics circulating the markets, there’s no question why retail investors are deeming the next runup a ‘fake short squeeze’.

What we do know however is that massive moves are coming up regardless of the label.

Can This Next Runup Trigger MOASS?

While it’s certainly possible the next runup could trigger MOASS, the feds are still investigating hedge funds.

And what’s a proper MOASS if synthetics aren’t fully taken accountability for and covered?

In this video I discuss my thoughts on the topic.

The next runup will mean that every ape invested in AMC will be profitable.

That I’m certain of.

MOASS will occur when these phantom, synthetic shares have been closed.

While the community can put the information out there, it will ultimately be up to regulators to force financial institutions to cover these too.

Retail investors will have to continue fighting for proper market structure if a MOASS is to occur.

In the meantime, the community should keep an eye out on the short interest data.

While Ortex data is self-reported and could very well be higher, it’s the only tool retail investors currently have to measure some ‘squeeze potential’.

Get Excited for Big Moves

Regardless of if the media refers to these coming moves as a short squeeze, the community is going to be very profitable on paper.

What lies after these price runups will become clearer as this play continues to unfold.

Massive moves seem to be up ahead, know what you hold.
